Out of Touch is a psychedelic melodramatic comedy about a group of childhood friends as they grow up, grow apart, and reconnect…before everything really goes off the deep end! Taking inspiration from psychedelic thrillers, Out of Touch is an extremely odd journey through several genres from teenage romance to existential horror. After being sent away by his mother due to a terrible misunderstanding involving his closest friend, our protagonist CJ returns years later for the last two semesters of high school completely changed in both body and spirit. Wielding a newfound power and determined to rekindle his old relationships, can CJ convince his friends he’s the same person they used to know? Can he avoid ruining absolutely everything like the doofus he is?

Missing Cro’dhearg and trying to heal won’t throw an exception anymore.
Cro’dhearg won’t use her AOE when she shouldn’t and cause a softlock.
The “Insert Jump Here” transition at the end of the sequence has been taken out back and shot. Again.
So the Auto button actually works, the button itself just doesn’t reflect that. It is currently undergoing therapy and will reconcile with it’s friends soon.
Animations are still more jittery than wanted, optimization will continue on this for the foreseeable future.
Out Of Touch v1.0Beta
-New GUI! That means a new title, new menus, new textbox, new choice buttons. Everything!
–Art revamp is complete. With the exception of some parts of chapter 6 and 7, everything prior to 8 has been completely redone and brought up to the standard of chapter 9 onward, giving the VN a consistent visual quality.
-New content in Chapter 7 and 15. Both are massive spoilers, but you can’t miss them. Especially 15. Play 15.
–New music, both original and featured! Some of the older songs have been replaced with more thematically appropriate music, overall the soundtrack should feel more consistent in its theme.
-An actual credits sequence!
–New task bar icon! Look at that little flower!
-Animations in Chapter 15 are still a bit janky and reset by themselves occasionally. We’re still working on the animation framework and this should get progressively better every update.
–if you use the scroll wheel to return back to the combat encounter in Chapter 15, you’ll get an exception error. Just reload or rollback to fix it.
-The auto button literally does nothing.
–If you complete the combat segment in Chapter 15 and then reload a save prior to it, the combat segment will not load correctly if you reach it again. This can be fixed by just exiting and restarting the VN.
Out Of Touch v0.9.3
-Last update of the year and the last update before the big Vol. 1 Beta release in January!
–Chapter 2 and 3 art remakes are done!
-Chapter 2 features a separate adventure segment for both Jamie and CJ, including the first little side quest of the series involving three new characters.
–Alejandra will remember if you’ve visited her in Ch1 or not.
-Leah has some new conversation options when CJ and her are alone in her apartment.
–A stupid UI bug which made all the menu text black on some machines is fixed. Sorry about that.
Out Of Touch v0.9.1
Chapter 1 remake is done!
Added the first version of the adventure gameplay segments and significant amounts of new dialogue between CJ, Jamie and Sarah for this part. Also a brand new character!
Added animations back into Ch15 after dropping them on the floor. Whoops.
New updated splash art for the title and the new main theme song, the first music made specifically for Out of Touch!
A lot, I and I mean a lot, of behind the scenes code changes that have changed the whole game from a simple one label kinetic novel to being on a real game framework. Chapter 1 is just the beginning, with this restructure in place making more adventure gameplay content will be a walk in the park.
Just a little mini update, I merged all released content into one Ren’py executable and reuploaded it. If you would like to compress this as well, absolutely feel free.
Basic story elements for all of Vol.1 are out. Prologue art assets are release quality.
Out of Touch! is my passion project that grew from a little writing challenge back in March when quarantine had just started.
Since then, it’s grown from a short story to a small comic series and now (finally) a real visual novel!
Creating this VN has been a real joy in my life and I wake up every day excited to work on it, even 8 months later. I only hope I can share a little bit of that with my readers, especially the wonderful creators I’ve had the pleasure of becoming friends with because of this project.
Out of Touch is planned to be 100 chapters and currently the first Volume of 15 chapters is complete and published, with new chapters coming on a regular basis!
